We all have different skills, talents and weaknesses. I for one can’t look at a spreadsheet without my eyes glazing over. Fortunately I’ve been gifted with an ability to craft words in a way that people find interesting and entertaining; a skill that I continuously develop so that I can deliver ever-increasing value to my clients. I’ll help you to develop a close relationship with your reader. Having distilled the essence of your business, I’ll write messages for you that are powerful and compelling. Your reader will be motivated to respond to your proposals, enabling you to meet your business targets.

Increasing Your Efficiency

Increasing Your Efficiency and Effectiveness

It’s said that “an ounce of anticipation is worth a pound of verbosity”. My knowledge helps me to operate nimbly and “cut to the chase”, helping you to meet deadlines on-time and within budget. I fully appreciate that cost is as important a part of the equation for you as benefits when striving to achieve your goals. Being agile and adaptable means I can fit in with your processes, adding to your efficiency. Natural ability, training and experience enable me to turn complex industry language into clear, compelling English, quickly and accurately. I help you to travel light and hit hard.

Adding Extra Value

Adding Extra Value to Your Creative Process

Creativity doesn’t come naturally to everybody. You may be the most brilliant person in the world in your chosen field but that doesn’t automatically lead to a clear conversation with your reader. I’ll help you to find your voice and create a style and tone that presents you to your reader in an attractive and distinctive way. I’ll create messages for you that will be easily-understood, informative and persuasive. The vocabulary that I use is precise; accurately demonstrating to your reader why they should respond as you would like them to. I do all this in a friendly, dependable way; happy to help reduce your stress levels!

>Tenders and Proposals

Tenders and Proposals

Are you competing for business and looking for a competitive edge? You may think your offer is the best but it won’t be chosen unless it stands out from the rest. People buy from people. Feelings play an important part in our decision making process. I write bids that are technically accurate, easy to read and connect with the purchaser at a human level. Style and tone are critical for success. Making sure that your buyer understands your personal qualities and values, as well as your industry competence, will get you ahead of the field.

Editorial and PR

Editorial and PR

Do you want the world to know about you and why they should buy from you? Of course you do. Appearing in the best publications is still a very powerful way to promote your messages and attract new business. I can help you with the process of finding the most suitable publications and support you in working effectively with them. Writing your story with an easy, entertaining flow will allow your reader to better understand you and the benefits that you deliver, almost by osmosis.

Online Marketing

Online Marketing

Is your social media really working properly for you? I’m happy to work for Agencies or directly for Clients in the regular production of all online marketing material from web-site content to newsletters and everything in between. In the busy world of social media, shouting louder won’t get your voice heard. Speaking more attractively will. It’s all about understanding who your reader is and what kind of material and approach will bring them to you. Capable of using a wide-range of styles, I can draw-in and hold your reader so that you can build and maintain your relationship with them.

Business Correspondence

Business Correspondence

Is it a good use of your time to write all the correspondence in your business yourself? The world of letters, emails and presentations is an important part of your marketing strategy. Any correspondence with customers is an opportunity to develop business and by not doing so it becomes an opportunity missed. Even invoices, when approached intelligently, can become a regular contributor to your sales and marketing activities.

I can reduce your workload by undertaking correspondence that is distracting you from your day job. By thinking creatively and effectively I can also generate added value from all kinds of communications that you wouldn’t think possible.

It’s all about achieving your goals.

Telling stories is the oldest, tried, trusted and effective technique for getting your messages across. It’s critical that you grab the attention of your reader, entertain them and interest them. You now need to inspire your reader to respond in a way that supports your goals.

My approach brings a sharp focus towards helping Agencies and Clients meet their business objectives.
